You're completely missing my point. I was speaking as to why these new jam bands are not taken seriously and never reach the same levels as GD and ABB and others.

I never said a song has to be good lyricly to be good, nor did I say a song had to have some sort of deep meaning to be taken seriously.

I said this new generation of Jam bands often have riduculous lyrics and becasue of that they come off as charicatures of themselves. Phish is a perfect example of my point.

In my opinion, they're an excuse to dose and nothing more. As far as you parting shot about spewing bile, I have one question - If you are so far above it why the fuck are you responding then, meatstick?

Not to be the turd in the soup (I prefer sharp stick in the eye), but "taken seriously" by who?

Phish, SCI, Panic all have a huge following that take them seriously enough which by most metrics makes them successful. I really like SCI and have had a great time at every show I've been to. But I also have no expectation that I am going to a round table panel discussion with Isaac Asimov, Albert Einstein (or Norman Einstein if you're Joe Theismann) Stephen Hawking and Isaac Newton.

Some of the lyrics might be cheesey, but at least it's a decent Stilton instead of the for shit Velveeta that most contemporary pop artists spin out.

But yes, I agree with you, moe sucks. A lot.

And don't forget "100 million, billion tons of steel" ain't a whole lot better than Velveeta - but yes, I realize one data point does not make a trend.

PS - I am not a meatstick. At least not today and when I am, only for skies.

Great question - better yet who DOES take them(their lyrics) seriously?

Not a single critic or writer or anything Ive read or anyone Ive spoken to in the last thirty years.

I really dont think Im THAT sheltered dude - as in to have no idea that Phish has been heralded for many years for their lyrics. Its because they have not. Its common sense. Its also just my opinion that they suck balls. I said that before.

Now, you brought up shitty new bullshit pop vs. Phish - we got a debate there buddy. I DESPISE new music. DESPISE it. I still think Phish is worse though. It seems to me that they are, and stil represent everything shitty about the scene back in the day. I really dont know how else to put it. They are fake and their shows are fucking FILLED with shady people. I have been to Darien when they come to town. That is just not my scene. Perhaps its Phish=newshittypopmusic in my book. A dead heat. A tie. Unlistenable.


Meatstick is a bad Phish song. So actually by you sticking up for Phish - That actually DOES make you a meatstick. Sorry bout that dude.

Oh, don't get me wrong. I can't stand Phish for all of the reasons you and others have mentioned. Can they play? Sure - so can a lot of people. As Cliff puts it, it's a bunch of aimless noodling. Do thousands of slack jawed window licking cretins love them? Yup.

I think Phish pretty much sucks - and the fooked up lyrics for most of their songs is why.

"The tires are the things on your car that make contact with the road.
The tires are the things on your car that make contact with the road.
The tires are the things on your car that make contact with the road.
The car is the thing on the road that takes you back to your abode."

Hey, Anastasio. Tires? No shit. Shut the fuck up ya douchebag.

There is more than a little crossover between Phish Heads and Cheese Heads. And while I have run into plenty of Phish Heads that were absolute shit knuckles, the number of Cheese Heads who have been asshats is far fewer. Maybe it's because SCI started out as a bunch of ski bums playing Colorado mountain bluegrass for lift tickets while Phish started out as a bunch of freaks with goofy assed lyrics from the get go.

I did not know Meatstick was a tune by Phish....you did. So despite your protestations, it would appear that the meatstick torch has been passed.......

Just don't get me started on the Disco Biscuits. We had homemade spring rolls and I don't want to vomit my socks up by talking about the Disco Crickets............

O crap that is funny man....You are correct sir, apparently I would be the meatstick in this discussion.

I think one of the main reason Phish pisses me off is definately the people there. I have tried to have somewhat intelligent conversations about Phish and many times it goes something like this.

"Phish blows man, I mean I understand that you dig them but there lyrics are so lame".

"No waay man, the lyrics are where its at man. Its like abstract poetry filled with antonyms all fighting each other inside your head dude".

Then of course I become thouroughly disgusted with humanity in general and stop talking about Phish. Point being, I can never ever relate.
